So for the first follow-up to that question, I am going to highlight why it is important to learn up on those linguistics terms if you have any intent on becoming fluent in multiple languages. If you have ever taken a book learning or classroom approach to learning a language you’ve probably noticed a bunch of linguistics terms related to the language concepts that you are learning. For this post I am going to call upon the example of French when I was learning one of the forms of the past tense called the “imparfait.”
As anyone who’s also taken French or any of the other Romance languages knows, there are a lot of different conjugation schemes that you have to learn if you want to obtain fluency in any of those languages. The first one of these that I came across was the “imparfait,” which translates to “imperfect” in…

thank you for highlighting the importance of eating something raw – enzymes and all… not only to the breast tissue but to the immediate intestinal and colonic areas, as well… :-)

It’s very rare to find someone that never has any digestive problems. Most people get bloated and has flatulence, are sometimes constipated, and sometimes the opposite. All being a first sign, then comes the diagnoses; Candida over growth, Celiac, intolerance, funguses, IBS, leaky gut, acid reflux, GERD, ulcers, Crohn’s… Our digestive system is complex, and as 80% of our immune system is found there it can also become weak by digestive disorders. As one example statistics show that constipation is a risk factor for cancer. The conclusion stated that the only healthy way to get more bowl movement is eating more whole plant based foods, and that the intake of fiber wasn’t enough.
In another study funded by the National Cancer Institute, 20 participants were encouraged to eat 1 to 2 cups of cruciferous vegetables a day. As I mentioned before the cruciferous are known to fight cancer

Last weekend I went to a friendly little cafe in Dulwich Hill for breakfast with a couple of my favourite people. On the menu were some house made baked beans and I got to try them – yummo. Nothing like those nasty radioactive looking things from a tin, these beans were soft and tasty – a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy. Don’t get me started on the dirty chai – a mix of soy milk, decaf coffee and chai spices which sounds awful but tasted like heaven…..
I got to thinking about what an underrated meal this is. Have them for breakfast with toast, lunch in a sandwich or with some salad, dinner gets easy with burrito filling, baked potato topping, with some brown rice and herbs or just a warm bowl full with melty cheese or sour cream/cashew cream and some fresh greens…

oh, i’ll gobble up veggies, anytime – stir-fried, steamed, boiled, blanched, pickled… although i’m trying my best to be careful about garlic and the rest of the onion family, and eggs, as well… ;-)

Not a fan of cauliflower? I’m willing to bet this dish will change your perception of this vegetable. The best way to prepare cauliflower is by roasting it! Roasting will caramelize it, bringing out a sweeter flavour. You would not get this flavour by boiling the heck out of your cauliflower. The combination of herbs spices in the tomato sauce add a nice compliment to the caramelized cauliflower. This recipe is also vegetarian and gluten free.
Ingredients (serves 6)
1 medium head of cauliflower
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon of fresh thyme
1 can diced tomatoes
a pinch of red pepper flakes
a pinch of ground cinnamon
a pinch of coriander
3 medium eggs
3/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
1. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C) . Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. Cut cauliflower into ⅓-inch thick slices and…
